Again?! White Powdery Substance Found At Obama’s DC Office

A day after Donald Trump Jr.’s wife, Vanessa, was rushed to the hospital after being exposed to an envelope of white powder, it is being reported that a white powder substance was also found at former President Obama’s DC office.

According to a report from Washington Examiner, the DC Metropolitan Police Department and DC fire and emergency services responded to a report of the white powder substance on Tuesday morning.

Per the report:

Law enforcement received the call at 11:05 a.m., and DC Fire and EMS arrived on the scene three minutes later.

According to DC Fire and EMS, a letter containing the white powdery substance had been sent to the headquarters of the World Wildlife Fund, which is where Obama’s office is located. The substance ended up being baby powder.

A hazmat team and the U.S. Secret Service were also on the scene, which was cleared by 1:15 p.m., the Metro Police Department said.

Here’s more, from Fox 5:

The incident was reported around 12:30 p.m. at 1250 24th Street in Northwest, D.C. The former president has leased office space at the building since leaving office in January 2017. The building is owned and is headquarters to non-profit World Wildlife Fund.

The Obama family lives in D.C.’s  Kalorama neighborhood which is near the office. It is unclear if the former president was in the office when the incident was reported.

It is unclear whether the former president was at his office or if anyone was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Police said that traffic in the area is closed until they are finished.

The incident comes just one day after a suspicious letter containing “an unidentified substance” was addressed to Donald Trump Jr. and sent to a property belonging to his wife Vanessa. Three people, including Vanessa, were taken to the hospital as a precaution.
